There are two basic pricing models. MVM will bill you for individual project work such as pruning or canopy management on a time and material basis. Our labor rates are based on skills, experience and supervisory level. Materials purchased by MVM on your behalf such as herbicide for weed control will be billed to you as a separate expense item.The second method of pricing is for MVM to charge a flat fee per producing acre per growing season. This includes viticulturist supervision in concert with the labor and equipment to support vineyard operations from pruning through harvest. Chemicals used in the custom spraying program for your site are billed separately or may be provided by the owner.
